The flower of this species is similar to other Coreopsis varieties, but these bright yellow flowers always come out on top because they are very tall. This trait makes it a fine choice for a tall-grass prairie restoration.
This plant's blazing brightness and heat-loving, drought tolerant growth has made it one of the most well known native wildflowers, as well as being a popular choice of beginning gardeners and master gardeners alike. The genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek "koris," refers to the resemblance of the seeds to bedbugs. The flowers in this family have become especially well loved by the citizens of the state of Florida, who appointed Coreopsis as their official state wildflower in 1991.
